Recorded in the famous 'Legends Recording Studio' in New York City, Remynd pays homage to East Coast hip-hop while refining his own style and content.
About Remynd Born into a military family, Remynd treats his music like bootcamp: Aggressive and powerful, with lyrics over strong and tenacious beats; bound to carve a lane in an unpredictable industry. Having already opened up for veterans in the Rap game including KRS-One, Talib Kweli, The Roots and Ludacris, the Puerto Rican native hopes to become a trendsetter and, ultimately, a household name.
Also born during the emergence of Hip Hop, Remynd, traveled vigorously as a child due to his military father. Forced to find ways to cohere to the culture of Germany where his family were stationed, to attending twelve different schools throughout his childhood, Remynd’s fast paced life prepared him for the lifestyle of an artist. To escape the pain and sufferings of a war that could easily claim his father, the Puerto Rican native focused his efforts into perfecting his raw talent.
Music runs through the veins of Remynd, which is nourished by his Latin Jazz percussionist father who traveled the world performing and also had the opportunity to accompany Grammy-award winning musician Ray Baretto, the godfather of Latin jazz.

PRODUCER THE ARE AND ZUMBI (OF ZION I) ARE THE BURNERZ--LP DROPS OCT 12, 2010--LEAK SINGLES EVERY WEEK UNTIL THEN
THE BURNERZ LEAK "ELOHEEM" AS THEY READY SELF-TITLED DEBUT LP
August 31, 2010--Oakland, CA--The Burnerz are a new duo consisting of Zumbi of the hip-hop group Zion I and the Houston-based Trackmasters producer, The Are. Now, after a year of scratching out rhymes, making beats, mixing, and mastering, The Burnerz—who met on tour in Europe in 2003—just completed one of the most energizing independent hip-hop albums of the year.
The Burnerz recruited The Grouch, OneBeLo, Martin Luther, and C-Holiday for the album. “Instead of going through layers of editing (like we do for Zion I),” explains Zumbi of his approach, “We tried to capture the initial emotion of both lyrics and beats for this album.”
Zumbi has always set a new standard for socially conscious hip-hop and this album is no exception. The track “The Edge” where The Grouch and Zumbi spit rhymes about snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. “It's about feeling hopeless and fearful, but having just enough strength to turn around and confront one's demons,” explains Zumbi.
As the charismatic emcee of Bay Area group Zion I, Zumbi has released six critically acclaimed albums along with numerous EPs and mixtapes. Zumbi contributed to the Grammy-Award winning group Linkin Park’s album Reanimation as well as the BassNectar album, and mixtapes for the Roots, K'naan and Q-Tip. Currently, Zion I are touring with reggae sensations Rebelution. Their seventh album Atomic Clock drops Nov 9.
Veteran producer, The Are, hails from Houston, TX but his production style is more drum-heavy east coast in sound than southern. He began his career with the trio K-Otix in the mid 90s, touring Europe and releasing the 2001 LP, Universal, and producing two tracks for EMC (Punchline, Masta Ace, Wordsworth, and Stricklin). But, it’s been within the last couple years, that The Are has flourished: After signing with the production team the Trackmasters, he produced singles for Keisha Cole (“Where this Love?”), Lil Kim and Lords of the Underground, as well as many others. His Michael Jackson instrumental remix CD, Dem Damb Jacksons, became an online collectors item in 2007. Finally, he produced the first single off the forthcoming Keisha Cole album.
Fans will have to wait until October 12 to hear The Burnerz, but they promise to leak new singles (not on the record) every week until then.
